Alright, so this may seem like a dumb shallow question but I honestly need help and don't know what to do. So all my past girlfriends have told me that they like my weight (I'm overweight, 280lbs, 6" tall), but recently one of my exes told me that they no longer find that attractive and perfer skinny guys now. Now that has been eating at me for the longest time. A lot of people like me for my weight and for being a "teddy bear", but lately I have been feeling like my relationship's would be so much better if I lost weight. I just want to know what other people think... Do girls find skinnier guys more attractive?

It depends on the girl. I am more attracted to stockier, solid guys, not "fat" guys or skinny guys. That doesn't mean I wouldn't date somebody with a bit of chub or a skinny guy, but I have my preferences. I don't think (by the sounds of what your girlfriends said) that your weight was the issue in your relationship. If people love and accept you as you are and told you so, then it's unlikely that you being skinnier would have made the relationships work - and if it did, it would have been for superficial reasons, not genuine ones.
If you're concerned about your weight you could work on it, but you should do it out of your own desire for your health. If you're happy at your weight, then screw anyone who has an issue. Just do you.1
